Yaaarrrrr! There be pirates, card crafting and cube throwing ship battles in this 4X game from AEG. Watch our Preview of Dead Reckoning to find out how it all works, and how this design has evolved from past card crafting titles.

All hands on deck for Dead Reckoning! This easy to learn but strategically deep game from @alderac delivers a broadside to the swashbuckling genre with its card crafting and multiple pathways to victory. It hits Kickstarter next month.
